Comment Moderation Policy

Streetsblog welcomes online community discussion and encourages readers to sign up for a Disqus account and join the dialogue.

Streetsblog is a moderated forum. We work hard to maintain a high tone and collegiality in Streetsblog’s comments section. And we welcome disagreements!

But we will delete ad hominem attacks, unnecessary or uncreative profanity, off-topic posts, flat-earth arguments, racial or ethnic characterizations, sock-puppeting, dog-whistling and comments that simply don’t add real value to the conversation. Again, we welcome a conversation, but urge commenters to flag any comments that they feel are inappropriate.

Be cogent. Be concise. Be courteous. And be conscious.
